CBP Issues Harmonized System Update With Section 301 Exclusions, Some TSCA Codes

CBP created Harmonized System Update (HSU) 1904 on March 25, containing 1,015 Automated Broker Interface records and 194 Harmonized Tariff Schedule records, it said in a CSMS message. The update includes adjustments required by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative’s announcement of new exemptions from Section 301 tariffs on China (see 1903210048). Also included in the update are “some, not all, of the associated HTS codes for composite wood products, flagged with an EP7 (TSCA certification ‘may be required’) code,” CBP said. Modifications required by the verification of the 2019 HTS are included as well.
